Why I Read!
"Books never really end. They stay with you, good or bad, and can float into your mind quite without warning. Years later, the faint embers of a line drift across your conscience or a place you have visited only in print flickers by. The name of a character whirls around the brain like that of a primary school classmate. Books take root. A book alters you, only in a minor way and sometimes fleetingly, but you're never completely the same when you've finished as you were on page one." 
Daniel Gray in Scribbles in the Margins 50 Eternal Delights of Books

These books challenge readers to look differently at themselves, their neighbours and the world around them. 

CBC Laugh Out Loud's Ali Hassan returns for his second year as host. The panellists and the final five books will be announced Jan. 30, 2018. The debates will take place March 26-29, 2018, and will be broadcast on CBC Radio OneCBC and online at CBCbooks.ca.
